Hi,
Bought it with a 11' Harbor utility body and lumber rack on Monday in Bakersfield, drove it back home to San Francisco. Got 14.5 mpg per dash computer trying to hold a 65-70 mph pace. I was expecting more mpg, but I guess the aerodynamics and weight of the thing is much worse than the vans.
I like the truck but am still shocked at the sheer height and length of the thing. Parking in the city might be a torture. I'm gonna be that guy when people see me trying to park in front of their car, they'll run outside to watch my Ram-mer.

We'd like to see a picture of that! Try tinypic.com to host it? Super easy. It is hard to believe there is any body that could bring the mileage down to 14.5 - Wow!

Congrats! It will be a piece of cake to park with some time spent in it.
Not much longer than a pick up truck(bumper to bumper).
Oh and Welcome to the site.

P.S. the ladder rack disturbs the air flow. Thats why the milage is down.

I added two pics of it in my garage.
I did a side by side comparo with a chevy 2500hd with 8' utility body and I'm a foot longer, most of which is my super duper platform bumper sticking out past his truck.
